Opinion on Recent Audition
Rega Brio-R, Rega Apollo CDP, Rega RP3 TT
with the following speakers:
Monitor Audio RX1, Dynaudio DM2/6, Dynaudio DM2/7, Dynaudio Excite X12
My opinion is:MA RX1's, which I have listened to before, are agreat speaker for the price, but sound is a bit loose compared to the others (if I was spending £400 on speakers, it would probably be these).
DM 2/6 tightened everything up a bit, although vocals seemed weak.
DM 2/7 improvement again over DM 2/6, vocals great this time, but a little too much bass for my liking (I'm in a small room).
Excite X12's were all the posiitves from the above in one package. Really liked these!Didn't seem to find any problems with the Brio-R driving the Dynaudio's.
Anyway left the shop witht he Brio-R amp.Going back for the RP3 next, which also sounded great with X12's.And then back for the X12's unless anyone convinces me of alternatives at this price point.
For info. music listened to was BB King/Eric Clapton - 3'OClock Blues on th CDP.Dave Brubeck's Greatest Hits (1967 Stereo) on RP3.
Comments very welcome.
